Week 1 of Lecture Notes *not all the notes of this week are here because the topic relates more to the next week Key Terms  International politics – the examination of relations between countries without a common ruler o Having a common ruler makes the politics international versus domestic  State – a country with territory and sovereignty  Nation – a singular ethnic group  Nation-state – a state made with a single ethnicity  Non-state actors – a person, group, organization, terrorist group, activist group, or any network that can sway political leaders of different countries to affect international politics o EXAMPLES: World Vision, Red Cross, Boko Haram, etc. Key Ideas  How can you tell the difference between states and non-states? states have actual territory, militaries, police forces, and population to back up their power non-states rely on their influence over people with their products and their services to sway states  What is the difference between International and Domestic Politics? International politics is often messy with no real accountability, every state involved has their own power and sovereignty – theres no higher power to keep promises kept and leaders happy Domestic politics have set rules and actual enforces, the individual government can control its occupants and resources, and the country actually cares for its own interests
